In honor of black excellence, highlighting the Queen Angela Davis!
She emerged as the leader of Communist Party USA in the 1960s with close ties to the Black Panther Party; fighting against sexism, racism, colorism, and inequality. She has advocated for the abolishment of prisons and the prison-industrial complex, emphasizing the right everyone has to be treated humanly. She is currently Distinguished Professor Emerita at the University of California, Santa Cruz, where she teaches in the History of Consciousness Department and is the former director of the Feminist Studies Department.
As we all know we are not perfect, indeed we are human...Maybe we don't reflect the image of "beautiful" to ourselves; perhaps we are hurting ourselves in an attempt to maintain a "beautiful" physique. But did you know that God designed us uniquely, purposefully, and lovely? God sees the innermost parts of us and he declares, it is good. At the end of the day, we are all different shades of phenomenal. We were scooped up from clay by the hand of God- it can't get much better than that. We are excellent, we are beautiful, we are strong, we are healthy, we are courageous; if we choose to be.
Angela Davis fought hard and long, illuminating and fighting against racial injustice!! She continues to fight today as she educates and advocates on behalf of Black individuals! She let nothing silence her- even jail time! She is labeled today as a radical, but my answer to that is why shouldn't we be? Until the balance is restored let's go crazy (with a splash of productivity tho)! “Yes, I’m an extremist. The Black race… is in extremely bad condition. You show me a Black man who isn’t an extremist and I’ll show you the one who needs psychiatric attention!” (Malcolm X) Hold your head high Love, you Angela! Shoutout to those who are working/and have worked to fight for what is right!
Live life out loud, take care of this image God eloquently molded/molds...and while you at it have a great day.-Brea
